A primary requirement for an evaluation ecological representation is the selection of an ecological classification system. The approach currently used by Canfor is based on aggregation of Biogeoclimatic Ecosystem Classification (BEC) site series (Huggard 2001; Bunnell et al. 2003; Wells et al. 2004). This approach has the advantage of identifying ecosystem types based on vegetation communities, a finer scale classification then is typically available outside of British Columbia.
